Default Sync AppLink Pandora

Have any of you been able to get this working on your trucks? I was hoping the new update may add it. I'm not seeing any app in the list for pandora. Is there something I need to download? I updated it on my phone too.

http://blog.pandora.com/faq/contents/10023.html

I'm also curious if anyone really uses the phone part of sync? When I have an incoming call and I don't want it to run through sync how do I make that happen?

I have used Pandora in my truck with the controls on the steering wheel. I usually don't use a lot of the voice functionality.

I just stream pandora through bluetooth and use the steering wheel controls as well. You can put your phone in privacy mode which will route the call through your handset.

The only 2011 vehicle with AppLink is the Fiesta. F150s won't get it until at least the 2012 model year: http://www.syncmyride.com/Own/Module...00#question555. As for phone calls, yes, if you press the [Privacy Mode] button, the call will ring on the handset.

I detest freakiing $15K econoboxes getting in my freaking way... driving slow, grooving to their freaking superior Applink ... Damn you Ford MOCO!!! Damn you to HELL!!!!

... and for manufacturing our F150's out of Tin... secret-like... so we buys 'em and then our hauling and whatnot breaks 'em.. and your serivce departments dance and laugh and poke grubby chicken greased fingers at us as they listen to the Fiesta's on the lift with the Applink pounding out the the lady Gaga hits..!!!

Seriously... Lady Gaga Ford service guys? Kinda embarrassing cause that's what I "hear" they groove to over at the Toyota shops... just sayin'

When I'm streaming pandora through my phone I can hit the ok button to pause pandora and the scroll button/next button to skip the current song. Of course the sound controls work too.

ok cool!

I did notice I can use steering wheel controls to control music on my phone didn't know it worked for Pandora too.

Stupid phone immediately starts streaming MP3s when I connect via bluetooth audio, haven't figured out how to stop that. Wouldn't be bad if I actually had MP3s on phone, I just have MP3 ringtones. lol
